Homemade Non-Petroleum Jelly

(aka DIY “Vaseline”)

1/8 cup grated beeswax (about 1 ounce)  I used beeswax pellets that I had ordered off Amazon awhile ago.
1/2 cup olive oil
Combine beeswax and oil in a small saucepan. Melt over very low heat or in the top of a double boiler.      Pour into a jar to cool.
Full directions can be found here.

  1. Just made this formula last night. I first made it with cocconut oil and had an allergic reaction on face-very inflamed face, burning. Switched to olive oil w/beeswax, and added 4 drops of lavendar oil. This scent removed olive smell. Formula firm. I named this formula 'Bee JAM Balm'- a take on petroleum 'JELLY', but without the bad stuff!
